We believe, without exception, that opportunity and adventure are possible for everyone. That’s why every Toad&Co garment purchased directly contributes to creating opportunities for adults with disabilities.
In 1997 we cofounded Planet Access Company
(PAC) to positively change the lives of adults with developmental disabilities by providing them with job training and work opportunities. The PAC warehouse is a full-time, third party logistics provider based in Chicago that processes 100% of Toad&Co’s inventory. Every unit is picked, packed, and shipped by the PAC warehouse crew with unmatched reliability and enthusiasm. That kind of dedication deserves a vacation: every Toad&Co garment you purchase directly contributes to sending PAC crew members on vacation. When you shop, we give.
In 2001 we expanded our partnership with Search, Inc. to start Search for Adventure, a non-profit committed to sending adults with disabilities on once-in-a-lifetime trips to the great outdoors. With more than 80 unique vacations provided to over 200 people, Search for Adventure is one of the programs we are most proud to support. Every year Search clients and Toad volunteers enjoy organized trips to places like the Appalachian Trail, the Bahamas, New York City and an annual trip to Toad&Co Headquarters in Santa Barbara, CA. Meeting the PAC crew and hearing their stories is one of the highlights of our year. It’s a life-changing trip for everyone.
